Vampires are the last thing reporter Cassie Briggs expects to find when her coworkers send her on an night mission to Showman's Hill Cemetery. Still, she would do anything to find her missing sister, even if it means taking up residence in an old house with very strange occupants and a caretaker as handsome as he is eccentric.
Basil Wensilton III, once a lion tamer in the circus, has never felt threatened until now. Cassie's body as well as her neck has him feeling emotions he thought died along with most his family and friends in an accident two centuries ago. When Cassie starts asking too many questions, he knows he can never let her leave - alive. He is a vampire with a job to do guarding the cemetery's secrets and its occupants, and ironically the one woman who can destroy him and "his kind" is also the only person who can save him from himself.
